Our First Christmas

Tuesday, December 28, 2010

Since we have been doing a lot of traveling as of late we decided to stay home for Christmas. We got a Christmas tree and a few decorations to help spruce up the place and get in festive spirit.

We got the tree at Home Dept and were so grateful for the nice man that tied it to the top of Jeff's car for us. Mom sent a few of my Christmas ornaments that my Grandma made over the years to help decorate the tree. I made a few ornaments as well. Thanks Martha Stewart!I made this little Christmas card wreath to help display all the beautiful Christmas cards we got. Once again, thanks Martha Stewart!Grandma A made Christmas stockings for us! Mom and Dad filled them with little gifts for us to open on Christmas morning.We bought a nice nativity scene at Macy's. We bought it on the 23rd and it was 70% off. Go with that I say!For dinner I made ribs and parmesan sweet potato fries and Jeff made a lovely goat cheese wanton salad. I know it's not very traditional, but it was sooo good. Then we finished the night off with some apple pie and ice cream. It was a really nice Christmas, but poor Jeff was really sick, but I don't think he mind sitting around playing Wii Sport Resort for most of the day.P.S. Doesn't Jeff look so excited for me to be taking his picture. I think he has a rough life ahead of him. :)


  1. how fun, I still have the ornaments from our first Christmas! Such memories. Glad you're happy and having fun. And, Jeff will get used to the pictures:)

  2. That looks like a really nice first Christmas :). And after six years of marriage, Chuck still rolls his eyes when I pull out the camera, but he's always glad that everything is well documented!

  3. I love this! You crafty girl you! I loved the card and am super jealous of your seal :)
